MAIDUGURI, Nigeria—At least 65 people died in an attack by suspected Islamists on a group returning from a funeral in Nigeria’s northeastern Borno region, state television reported on Sunday, one of the deadliest attacks on civilians in recent years.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Boko Haram group and rival group ISIS in West Africa (ISWA), splintered from ISIS, have often carried out attacks in the area.

Local government chairman Mohammed Bulama was quoted as saying on state television that the terrorists killed 21 people returning from the funeral on Saturday and another 44 people when they were met with return fire.

Nigeria has been plagued by Islamist terrorist attacks by Boko Haram and ISIS in West Africa (ISWA).

They have killed thousands and displaced millions in Borno state.
